Oh joy. Chelsea Clinton said in an interview that she wouldn’t rule out a potential run for political office. From The Journal News/lohud:

“I think if someone were to step down or retire and I thought I could do a good job and it matched my talents, I’d have to think if it’s the right choice for me,” Clinton said in an interview ahead of her upcoming book appearance in Eastchester.

Lohud asked Chelsea about the record number of females running for office and wanted to know why her name isn’t on the list:

I don’t have any plans to run for office, but it is something I think about as I hope every young person thinks about it. If you care about what’s happening in the world, you have to care about running for and holding elected office. I hope it’s a question that we ask ourselves. For me, I live in a neighborhood in the city and in a state where I feel my family, and what I hope for the world, is well-represented.

It’s at the national level where I disagree deeply with President Trump on, l think, everything practically.

But I like my City Councilwoman Carlina Rivera, I like my senators and I love my public advocate Letitia James who I hope is the next attorney general.For now, I am really focused on trying to make the change I want to see in the world through my work in the foundation, my writing and my teaching.

Oh come on. We know you’re trying to make a name for yourself. You’re a Clinton and Clintons thrive on politics and living in a position of power.

We have detailed the promotions of Chelsea like when she won the “Power of Women” Award from Variety and Lifetime Network. She wrote the book She Persisted and has a spot on the board of directors at Expedia.

Chelsea is drowning in interviews now to promote her latest book, Start Now! You Can Make a Difference, which encourages “young children to think critically about everything from the environment to bullying.”

Back in March 2017, Professor Jacobson blogged about Chelsea’s interview with Variety when she said she is not running for public office. She also said pretty much the same thing she told Lohud:

“If someone steps down or something changes, I’ll then ask and answer those questions at that time. But right now, no, I’m not running for public office.”
